    MEXICO CITY – Mexico will close its pre-World Cup tour of the United States with matches against two European sides that have also qualified for Brazil 2014, the Mexican Football Federation announced Friday.

    The Tricolor will take on Bosnia and Herzegovina in Chicago’s historic Soldier Field on June 3, before facing Portugal three days later at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

    In two all-time meetings, the Mexicans have defeated Bosnia twice, including a 2-1 triumph in their last on May 31, 2012, also played at Soldier Field.  Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez entered as a second-half substitute and scored the game-winner in front of 51,240 fans.

    Portugal is unbeaten against Mexico in a pair of encounters separated by 37 years.  A scoreless draw in 1969, was followed by a 2-1 victory for the “Seleção das Quinas” in a 2006 FIFA World Cup game played in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.  Maniche and Simao gave the Portuguese an early two-goal advantage, before Jose Fonseca replied in the 29th minute of the final Group D outing for each.

    After opening the year on January 29 with a 4-0 win over Korea Republic in San Antonio, Texas, Mexico will next face current African Cup of Nations champion Nigeria at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome on March 5.
